Advantage Of Forex

Why Trade Forex?

Foreign exchange (forex) is the world's largest financial market. Available to retail traders since 1999, the forex market offers unique opportunities:

Accessibility

Trade on your own schedule, 24 hours a day, during normal market hours: Sunday 5:00 pm through Friday 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.

Leverage

Forex markets can be traded with significant leverage.

You should consider the risks associated with increasing your leverage. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit; this feature may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin and may be required to deposit additional funds to cover a short margin position.

Volume

With an average turnover of $4.0 trillion per day, Forex is the most traded market in the world. (Source: Bank for International Settlements, April 2010). The tremendous trading volume in forex allows traders to enter and exit positions more readily.

Volatility

The forex markets exhibit substantial volatility. These price movements can provide profit opportunities, if managed correctly.

Direction

Forex markets can be traded in rising or falling markets, widening the opportunity set amid various market conditions.

Focus

The forex markets comprise relatively few instruments. By focusing on a select few markets, traders can channel their ideas and hone their strategies.

How Can Candlesticks Be Used In Forex?

The Nison Candlestick approach can provide you with valuable insight to navigate the forex markets. Used alone or in conjunction with traditional Western indicators, Candlesticks can help you evaluate the timing, risk, and opportunity of trends, reversals, and holding patterns in the forex markets.

Forex

Nison Candlesticks consolidate critical trading information: the open, close, high, low—all visually represented in the Real Body and Shadow of the Candlesticks. Candlestick analysis can be applied to a range of time frames: one-minute, five-minute, daily, or weekly. Candlesticks not only reveal price direction, but also the force of price movements – a critical differentiator between Candlesticks and bar charts that help to potentially spot reversals before your competition.

By learning to interpret Nison Candlesticks correctly, traders can add a valuable tool to their trading arsenals.

Futures, options on futures and forex trading involves substantial risk and is not appropriate for all investors. You should therefore carefully consider, based on your current financial status, whether such trading is suitable for you. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in commodity trading can work both for and against you. The use of leverage can lead to gains as well as large losses. Past results are not indicative of future results. Online trading has inherent risk due to system response and access times that may vary due to market conditions, system performance, volume and other factors. A trader should understand these and additional risks before trading.

Advantage Of Futures

Why Trade Futures?

Exchange-traded futures markets are among the largest and most liquid financial markets in the world, and have been around for over 150 years. Futures trading provides investors with some unique opportunities.

Sector Diversification

The futures markets encompass six sectors: foreign exchange, interest rates, equity indices, energy products, precious and base metals, and agricultural products. By learning to trade the futures markets, investors have a wider range of market opportunities.

Strategy Diversification

The futures markets can be traded using a number of different approaches including options, mini contracts, full-size contracts, and spreads.

Transparency

The futures markets use transparent pricing so that traders can fully account for execution costs. Moreover, prices are quoted through regulated exchanges, so all market participants see the same prices at the same time.

Stability

Futures markets are highly regulated. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) has oversight of all futures exchanges. Clearing brokers lend clarity and stability to trading activity by acting as the counterparty to every trade.

Leverage

Futures markets can be traded with significant leverage.

You should consider the risks associated with increasing your leverage. A relatively small market movement will have a proportionately larger impact on the funds you have deposited or will have to deposit; this feature may work against you as well as for you. You may sustain a total loss of initial margin and may be required to deposit additional funds to cover a short margin position.

Direction

Futures markets can be traded in rising or falling markets, widening the opportunity set amid various market conditions.
